Commercial Description

The flavor of the Pilsner Urquell begins with the intense taste of the Saaz hops, which blends with the malty sweetness of the barley to produce a harmonious bitterness and creamy body.

    A refreshing, pilsner-style lager. Its incredible smoothness comes from an extra-long lagering period. Lighter in body than our ales but just as complex in character,

    Crisp and light with a great hoppy taste and smell, this beer definately sets the standard for what a pilsner should be. I can definitely see how this one beer changed the world of beer leading all the way to Budweiser's control of the world beer market.

    Appearance: Pours crystal clear and golden and forms a nice head that dissipated quickly with no appreciable lacing.
    Aroma: Herbals hops and fresh cut hay.
    Taste: Hops and malt balance well, but provide no character. Strong metallic taste dominates.
    Texture: Light body plenty of carbonation.
    Drinkability: I had a hard time finding a reason to buy another bottle so I probably won't.
    Notes: Served in a Pilsener Glass

    This is the beer that sets the standard for Czech Pilsner. It is unfortunate that it comes in a green bottle that can "skunk" the beer. But it has the excellent bittering quality and crispness that makes Czech Pils stand out

    The pils of all pilsners, truly a classic. Very well balanced...mild malt with a good hop aroma and flavor credit to the Saaz. One of my all time favorites.

    The original and best pilsner on the planet. The Saaz hops make a notable statement, defining the style. Certainly the best of the breed.
